Dems say they'll slow Senate work over secretive care bill

A related issue is whether and at what level to cap federal Medicaid spending. "The reason they don't want to bring it public is because it's a disastrous bill, I suspect similar to what passed in the House". In a video, several female senators shared their constituents' stories.

But Rubio said he believes the process could take longer and urged the Senate to slow down.

And the president probably will sign the bill, even though it's doubtful he will know what's in it.

Democrats are weighing a strategy to get more public attention on the debate in the next two weeks, said Matt House, spokesman for Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of NY, but he declined to discuss details.

Also on Monday, Bernie Sanders of Vermont and Elizabeth Warren of MA were scheduled to rally supporters against the Republican plan in a Facebook Live event, another Democratic aide said.

"Here's the order of people seeing the healthcare bill", wrote Sen.

"I think we're not anxious so much about that as we are getting it together so we can get a majority to vote for it", said Senate Finance Committee Chair Orrin Hatch (R-UT) when asked about public review of the legislation, according to Slate, seeming to indicate that their bill would be kept secret until it's passable on the floor of the Senate.

By contrast, the bill Senate Republicans are writing is being held as close as the nuclear codes. If anything, many expect the Senate bill will be more generous with those credits.

Republicans have held no committee meetings or votes on the measure, which McConnell is trying to produce from numerous private meetings among GOP senators.

The general sense about McConnell's health insurance plan is that rural communities, that are largely made up of Republican voters, will lose local hospitals and doctors under the plan.

"Sen. McConnell said there'd be a vote", he told reporters.

Democrats planned a series of steps Monday night to gum up Senate procedure.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said in a statement that the moves are created to shed a light on the bill because the secretive process shows Republicans are "ashamed of it, plain and simple". Democratic senators will also make floor speeches late Monday on the subject.

McConnell has brushed off accusations that his party was crafting its bill in secret, a highly unusual move for legislation with such broad and sweeping implications. "You're free to ask anybody anything". So fix the crisis now, work on a long-term solution later, Gingrich argues.

On June 19, Democrat lawmakers disclosed that they would begin working to throw a wrench in Senate procedures to protest the GOP health care bill, which has been drafted in secret. They are negotiating behind closed doors and haven't scheduled any hearings on the emerging bill, which would drastically reshape health care. But Park pointed out that both bills include tax cuts that benefit the wealthy, the drug companies and others. "Their ObamaCare is dead with 100% increases in [premiums]".
